The Victorian Building Industry Disputes Panel
The VBIDP is an independent body established by the building and construction industry to provide dispute resolution in respect to industrial disputes and employment related issues arising in the building and construction industry (excluding electrical contracting) in Victoria. The Disputes Panel’s powers are derived from applicable Enterprise Agreements. Only disputes that arise in relation to applicable Enterprise Agreements can be dealt with by the Dispute’s Panel. It is also governed by the Victorian Building Industry Disputes Panel Charter, as determined from time to time by the Building Industry Consultative Council – a tripartite body established by the Victorian Government.
Note that disputes concerning the electrical contracting part of the Industry are handled by the Electrical and Communications Industry Disputes Board.
